I had driven by the Packard Museum many times and had always wondered what exactly was inside. I've been here twice now. The first time was right after seeing the movie "Carol" at a nearby theater. The movie was a special screening that included the trip to the Packard Museum afterwards for champagne and munchies. The reason for the museum... More

The Packard Museum is a hidden gem in Dayton. It is full of history and really cool and cars. It's worth a stop especially if your a car nut, but if you enjoy history they have some pretty interesting cars with back stories. When you visit see if you can find one of the cars that was in the movie... More

America's Packard Museum is open seven days a week from noon to 5:00. It is located in the original Packard Dealership constructed in 1917. They have over 50 gorgeous Packard's in their showrooms. Many, many artifacts all around the showrooms.

What a great find this museum is. Formerly a Packard dealership, it now houses gorgeous cars from a time when Detroit was an automotive powerhouse and American companies produced masterpieces of transportation. Stop by and take in all the shiny chrome and surprising comforts of Packards such as a built in bar. See the race car driven by Amelia Earhart.... More

My husband's company had their annual party here - and I was very pleasantly surprised at how interesting it was! I am not even a car buff. There is a lot of agricultural and automotive history here. The vehicles are well maintained, the museum spacious and clean. Centrally located near downtown - great for an afternoon visit.

If you are into old classic cars with a lot of history this is a place to go. Although they need to put more information regarding their car collections so even if you didn't get a personal tour (i was lucky enough that they were not busy and got a one on one tour) you will learn/know more about the...

I made a special trip to visit the Packard Museum after touring the US Air Force Museum. The Packard Museum in OUTSTANDING. As others have written, the museum is located in the actual Packard dealership building from "days gone by". The location has been refurbished and the 40 or so cars are on display throughout. The employees/volunteers are very helpful... More
